Shutting Down PriceMedal

I've decided to shut down my website, PriceMedal, a website that tracked Playstation 4 game prices from the Playstation Store, Walmart, and Amazon.

I really enjoyed creating and maintaining the website, it was sad to shut the project down, but the work involved to keep the website up and running has become too much.

I will use the newly available time to work on other projects including this blog.

I learned a lot while building this website and I hope that you were able to save some money by using the tool.
